LeadingAge Massachusetts aims to provide members with recent and
relevant information affecting our industry. 
Please check back soon for additional resources and updates.

Nursing Home Requirements of Participation (RoP) Tools

We are working to prepare tools and resources for you to use to comply with the new
CMS Requirements of Participation (RoPs). LeadingAge and state partners have contracted
with Pathway, a consulting firm, to prepare the basic information you will need to
understand the new regulations and update your policies and procedures.
As tools are developed, states may adopt them, as appropriate, to reference state laws
or regulations that may be relevant and will encourage you to do so as well. We will notify
you of the availability of these tools through newsletters and listservs. Tools and
resources are for LeadingAge members only. You will be your email and password
to access these documents through LeadingAge website.


LeadingAge members are adapting to a changing world with new generations of leaders and governance philosophies emphasizing engaged, creative boards. Here you will find resources to help empower your organization's board of directors.


Regardless of the profession or industry, the key to its success is the quality and effectiveness of its leaders.  Here you will find links to valuable leadership articles.
